Fix of shnid 318

I deleted the overlap between CDs 2 and 3 to make the transition seamless. I then (counterintuitively) added fade tracks to the end of CD 2 and CD 3 for those wishing to burn to CD. To make the transition seamless simply remove the fade tracks. All SHNs were converted to FLAC.

I removed the JBGoode from the previous night that was at the beginning of the CD 1.

I was in the house for this one. Great show! The shows I saw in the late 80s and 90s paled in comparison. Good times tho! Enjoy this stream.

And so crystal clear.

Everyone I show this Dacin'>Franklins to agrees that it sparkles with extra energy and flair. The transition into Franklin's is flawless.

So many people love to point out the hit-or-miss nature of some periods of 80s Dead. If the guys had their struggles, at least they were playing their hearts out for fans the entire time. It's almost sad that they were so popular because they needed more off time, obviously, especially as history will reflect.

ANYWAYS, this is the potency and potential that this lineup of Grateful Dead possessed. Jerry is still playing with speed and fire. Brent, if not completely assimilated and quite as influential as he would become eventually, is really crushing.

This show will probably continue to be passed over.

HEY DAVE LEMIUEX!!! Hint. Hint. Relisten to this one. With some spiffing up its undeniably release worthy as a whole.

my first show was 12/1 @ The Stanley in Pittsburgh but this whole fall/winter swing was killer this show included. the meat and potatoes sorry vegans lol of this show is the Dancin'/Franklin's absolutely no doubt and it was a killer jam disco-ish to a real nice Fanklin's. Wish I could've seen more of this tour but couldn't even see the 11/30 show parents made me make a choice because I already had The Who tickets for 12/2 @ the arena. All in all though real decent show not so-average imho as others say great moments.

Glad there is a board, albeit a flawed one, of this excellent show - Road Trips strikes again....

Set 1 - Pretty powerful energy throughout; got to love that Jack Straw set closer - kind of a rarity, no? Do I have to bring up how lame Easy to Love You is again? OK, I won't ;)

Set 2 - Dancin' is simply FUNKED OUT - just listen to Brent go haywire on the wurlitzer or whatever that is - the transition into Franklin's is just so scathing, disco-slash crazy!

After He's Gone they roll into a fantastic, balls-out rock jam teasing Caution, Gloria, whatever - great experimentation and followed post-Space by an absolutely thunderous Wharf Rat. Show kind of meanders after this, but there is a some seriously raw, red meat in this show -
Reviewer: njpg - favoritefavoritefavorite - November 9, 2011
Subject: Standard set list,
and standard performance before Drums/Space, after which they pull out all the stops for the finalé. Would maybe buy Road Trips 1.1 for that jam & other highlights, but not this whole show.

I had a blast at this show and remember it well. It was a ton of fun listening to it again at work this morning. Love this Archive! There was a great vibe and high energy in the crowd and on the stage. Probably the most memorable Jack Straw I heard the Dead play live.. An amazing second set with a stellar Franklins Tower and He's Gone... the He's Gone jam into drums is a beautiful thing.... in fact... think I'll play the second set again right now!

Subject: Gloria Breakout?
at about 3:25 in track 15 it sounds to me like the band plays an instrumental Gloria for a couple of minutes. The second set before drums is a smoker!

A hot show from a hot tour. The pre-drums second set is some of the hottest music you will ever hear!
